About the event

In our world of “fast fashion” and ever-growing textile waste, it’s crucial to slow down our consumption and assess our long-term relationship with our clothes. Join Wee Things owner and designer, Rachel Beaupre, and get inspired to make old things new!  

In this workshop, Rachel will walk you through different methods for mending, including decorative embroidery and the centuries-old Japanese sewing technique called "sashiko".  Traditionally used to securely quilt small fabric patches onto thread-bare clothing, sashiko translates to “little stabs” and consists of simple running stitches in beautiful geometric patterns. This is a great process for beginner menders! You can choose to follow along on your own project or simply observe Rachel's tutorials for future use. There will also be ample time to ask questions about your own mends!

"Mending Blues" sashiko-inspired mending kits are available to workshop attendees at a discounted price of $40 (free shipping included!). You do NOT need to purchase a kit to register for the demo workshop, but this discount is available to you.
